Question about Computers & Internet
I don't know how to do it since it's my first time doing this to a computer and it comes up with 4 steps: 1. Reboot to Windows XP 2. Recover Windows XP to first partition only. 3. Recover Windows XP to entire HD. 4. Recover Windows XP to entire HD with 2 partition Which one is the right one to do?
So my questions would be are you attempting to restore your PC to factory settings? or put a new Operating System on it?
If you are trying to restore to the way you got it, you probably have a recovery partition on your hard drive. If this is the case you are going to want to restore to your recovery hard drive.
If you are trying to put a new operating system on your PC then you will probably want to recover to the non recovery hard drive.
The other option to use the entire hard drive will give you more space on your PC to use, but will wipe out your recovery partition. Hope this helps.
If this isn't making sense try taking a picture of your partitions and posting up here so we can give you better advice.

To avoid problems again like this activate it first, if your not familiar to some techniques it very hard for you to understand what I am gonna tell. The most short term for this is to back up all your files[slave your hard disk to another computer if desktop, if not try to make some ways] and then reformat your computer./ Thats it!

Try Checking if your motherboards bios will recognize the hard drive. If not, Then the hard drive is probably damaged.
To access The bios, Most Motherboards open the bios when you press the delete key
If you have two or more hard drives then the settings of the jumpers eg. Slave,Master,Cable Select.
Because they might be conflicting with each other.
I had the same problem, But I tried installing XP Home edition on my secondary hard drive and it works.
But i need to insert my xp home install disc to get it the bios to recognize that windows is installed otherwise it goes " insert system disk and press enter"

I think the hard drive has no operating system on it or the MBR :Master Boot Record" is corrupt.
Try downloading "Hirens Boot CD" and burn to cd and boot from it.
It has a lot of useful Utilities on it for restoring MBR and formatting and partitioning

SOURCE: Bios Beeps during reboot
According to the information at:
AMI beep codes of 1 long and 3 short are, in fact, correctly identified as memory errors. One thing to note is if this memory is Dual Channel, you can only install the memory in groups of two. You must first fill DIMM slot 1 and 3 before filling DIMM slots 2 and 4.
The below website has much more information about your particular motherboard and there's a note about some JEDEC setting for memory that you might want to watch out for or disable to see if it improves stability.
As for Windows XP 32-bit not recognizing more than 3.5 (at most) memory, this is unavoidable. To see all 8 GB, you would need a 64-bit version of Windows. This is something that cannot be altered by BIOS or memory choices, unfortunately. Feel lucky in the fact that you have XP Pro as XP Home will only recognize up to 2.5GB. You'll never utilize all 8GB unless you upgrade your OS, so keep that in mind!
